I have been waiting all week on these pens and today they came in. Fast service from PenChalet.com.The dark lilac color is great and the grip makes it even better. I have never had a problem with the Lamy Safari grip but once you try this matte finish you will be impressed. I have ordered the ball point and some dark lilac refills for the fountain pen. First time in a while that I also picked up the fountain pen. This one has a medium nib. I will be looking forward to some great reviews on these pens.

Looks like here in the US we only have the five metallic colors. When I received my BIC box from England there were two more colors. The red and the gold metallic. Those of you collecting BIC 4 ways still need to find the other two colors.
I checked Ebay all the time and I have not seen these two colors.
I had to move the BIC Two Ways to another case. No more room.
On the BIC 2 ways I am missing the gold and the red metallic. Add them all to your collection.

Thanks to my good friends in England I just received what could be the final Rotring Core Rollerball pen.The new one is the one on the left. It also turns out to be one of the prettiest of the set. The new one is the Rubidium red and black with the metallic red barrel. The two smaller blue ones on the right are the ball point pens.
This new Core is by far the hardest to find. Add them all to your collection.

Here we have my new Acme Beatles Rollerball Pen. There are 27 different Beatles pens and you would have to have some money to get them all. From 1962 to 1970. I grew up with the Beatles and I remember sitting in front of our TV when they first hit the Ed Sullivan show. My dad made a point about no son of his would have long hair like that. He was wrong.
. These Acme pens are very nice. I also have the dog and the cat rollerball pens.
Add them all to your collection.

Here we have a new pencil for collecting. Starting on the left we have the original Orenz 0.2mm pencil in blue. Next is the Orenz 0.3mm pencil. The orange is a 0.3mm pencil with a rubber grip. Last is the all metal 0.2mm pencil. Pentel did an outstanding job making a usable pencil in 0.2 and 0.3mm leads. Its all in the mechanics of this great pencil. All them all to your collection.

Not going to try and list all these pencils. I have had these for some time and have slowly collected them without paying and attention to the numbers or condition. I am not including my Blackwing pencils.
Anybody seeing one they are interested in just let me know.
Add them all to your pencil collection.

There are now nine Pentel EnerGel pens in the known world. The nice dark blue pen on the right is the new one. What Pentel does is let Pentel of America pick the colors they want in the US to sell. Each major Pentel area around the world does the same. How many there are is still up in the air. I am sure we will find out. The original silver color pen is on the left. The display case being used in this picture is one of two I bought on Ebay that were made by Sheaffer Pen employees for use in the Ft. Madison Sheaffer Pen Factory. They are well used but have plenty of history. Add all this stuff to your collection.

Here is the new Polar magnet pen. The original one used a Hi Tec C refill but not this new one. This new version uses a rollerball refill that has a stylus at the end with the pocket clip. My only real complaint is that it only uses their refill. The one on the right was the first one that used the Hi Tec C Refill.
This time I got the gold pen and all the pens come with two extra magnets in case you loose one.
These pens are fun so add one to your collection.

Here is my current collection of Kuru Toga pencils. The case that holds my collection came from our local Barns & Noble. A set of Brush Marker pens. I do not see why more plastic companies don't make cases like this that hold the pens in place. My all metal Kuru Toga is not in the picture or my red Toga which came from JetPens with red lead. I do like the new sliding sleeve pencil. If they make over the all metal model with a sliding sleeve you would be close to a perfect pencil for me. Add them all to your collection.
